10,000 thanks from MAF as they take delivery of a new aircraft

11 June 2018

In September 2017 MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) sent out a heartfelt plea to Help us buy a plane!  (You may recall David Casson talking about it at MBC).  

As a result of that appeal, and within just 250 days of its launch more than 10,000 people sent a gift towards purchasing a Cessna 208 Grand Caravan (like the one pictured above). This means that today the aircraft is being prepared for take off ahead of joining MAF’s South Sudan fleet. 

Ruth Whitaker – the project’s UK Chief Executive describes this amazing response as “a magnificent outpouring of love towards men, women and children of the world’s youngest nation.” 

You can find our more about the success of this appeal and about MAF’s amazing work across the world by going to or you can of course speak directly to David Casson.
